Classic Intro - 6.15pm, Music Room
Norman Lebrecht, prominent cultural commentator and author of Why Mahler? How One Man and Ten Symphonies Changed Our World, talks about Mahler’s Ninth Symphony.
The very first notes of Mahler’s Ninth seem to droop with sadness. But that’s just the beginning, not the end, and in this extraordinary symphony Mahler wrings every last drop of sweetness and sorrow from a life of total emotional commitment. All this prefaced by a brand new tribute to the composer, inspired by the letter writing of Gustav Mahler, and written for our choir by the young British composer and 2017 Christopher Brooks prize-winner Grace-Evangeline Mason.
